I’m in awe of the ocean. In trying to learn how to surf, I was given a glimpse into just how powerful the ocean really is. Each set of waves felt like a mountain, crashing and dispersing its force on top of you. And before you can even catch your breath, it is replaced with an even bigger set. It was very humbling but also freeing. Being out in the waters, despite the mercurial nature of the ocean, you can’t help but be taken by the sublime of it all.
It’s tempting to think about Deng’s piece as a way to grab hold of a slipping-away summer, trap it like a firefly in a jar. But the wild and rowdy sea of Rebecca resists being held, and seems to insist that time moves—we can’t stop summer turning into fall anymore than our surfing figure could stop the waves from rolling. And just as important, she wouldn’t want to—she would lose her position among the majestic if the water below her stopped moving. Rebecca is a reminder that time ebbs and flows like the ocean, and carries us along through smooth and rough waters.
